Preconception Health Recommendations for Young Adults with Disabilities:
A Final Report from an Action Learning Collaborative (pdf)

The purpose of this report is to share the recommendations the Action Learning Collaborative (ALC) team developed in hopes of initiating a discussion, draw attention to the further work needed in this area, contribute to knowledge about young adults with disabilities and preconception health, and hopefully initiate action within public health, medical providers, schools, families, and youth to better address the health of youth with disabilities of reproductive age.
